== == * A 13 or 14-year old is a child, and therefore a peer of children. As such, he cannot be considered a pedophile. However, that doesn't preclude him from showing signs of developing pedophilic tendencies or from having other issues related to sexual development. = = * Absolutely! When some young man goes into puberty it is quite normal to explore their own bodies, and they also start seeing girls in a different light. Pedophiles are usually shy and unsure of themselves and are secretive about their thoughts and actions (most young men go through this and it's normal, but to a few they simply never grow out of this). The tendencies of having Pedophile qualities may lay dormant without action take when the person is this young, but, it isn't unheard of that a 11+ child could explore the body of a younger female. According to law in some countries and because of the age of the person in question they may not be charged with being a Pedophile, but it doesn't mean they don't have the tendencies and should get psychological help. There is NO cure for Pedophiles, but some sustainability through counseling and some medications. * No, A 14 year old is legally classified as an child. A pedophile is legally classified as an "Adult who is sexually attracted to prepubesent children."

Dahmer's first sex offense was the molestation of a 13 year old boy, and many of his victims were underage. But he did not hunt young boys exclusively, his oldest victim was 27. So I don't think he is classified as a pedophile, but may have pedophile inclinations or tendencies.

Why did Freddy Krueger kill children in the first place when he was alive?

He was a pedophile. Pedophile like to abuse children, sexually or with violence. Some people are just born pedophile. Others become pedophiles, because they were abused as children and they in turn abuse children as adult. There is no known cure for being a pedophile. Once a pedophile, always a pedophile according to the best known information. Please note that Freddy Krueger is NOT a pedophile in any of the original movies. He is only a pedophile in the new remakes that started coming out this year (2010).

He married Virginia when she was 13. And they were married 11 years. By today's standard (that being that 17-18 is legal age of consent) in order to believe that he was not a pedophile, you'd have to believe that he was married to her for 4-5 years without having sex with her.
